Oblong signs deal with NASA
Oblong Industries has been awarded a contract to equip NASA Aeronautics with Mezzanine, Oblong’s collaboration system.
In support of NASA’s Transformative Aeronautics Concepts Program (TACP), Mezzanine will help facilitate the program’s initiatives to cultivate multi-disciplinary, revolutionary concepts that drive aviation transformation.
TACP creates the environment for researchers to experiment with new ideas, perform ground and small-scale flight tests, explore technology feasibility, and perform rapid iterations on viable concepts.
Mezzanine will specifically be used as part of the TACP Convergent Aeronautics Solutions (CAS) project. CAS teams merge traditional aeronautics disciplines with non-aeronautic advancements to realize new capabilities in commercial aviation.
Oblong will install 10 Mezzanine systems across four NASA Aeronautics research centers: Langley Research Center in Hampton, Virginia, Glenn Research Center in Cleveland, Ohio, Armstrong Flight Research Center in Edwards, California, and Ames Research Center in Silicon Valley’s Moffett Field, California.
